9th Dawn III: Shadow of Erthil Next Week

9th Dawn III: Shadow of Erthil is an open-world RPG/dungeon crawler coming to Windows, consoles, and mobile on October 6th. In an unusual twist, this also includes a collectible card game, but this is a separate element. They say: "Need a break? You can put your adventuring on hold and take a breather by enjoying Fyued – a robust card game played throughout the game world with 180 collectible cards." Here's a bit on the RPG side of things: "9th Dawn III is a huge 2D open world RPG and “collect-a-thon” dungeon crawler packed full of adventure, allowing you to explore dungeons filled with more than 270 unique monsters – and enough treasure, loot, and rare materials to last a lifetime. There are also 1,400 uniquely drawn items to collect – including more than 300 weapons and 550 armor types and accessories!" The PC edition is coming to Steam and you can get a look at it in action in this release date trailer. Here's a feature list:

  • Huge seamless open world full of dungeons, crypts, forts, and villages.
  • Enormous amounts of loot, collectibles, and customizable gear.
  • Fyued – an in-depth card game with 180 collectible cards to collect from NPCs.
  • Monster collecting and leveling-up mechanics; 10+ monsters per character can be used to fight alongside you!
  • Full orchestral soundtrack.
  • Craft to create and customize weapons/armor, go fishing and make food, collect gems to create epic jewelry – and much more!
